Show us your vanity/make up set up!

I searched around and saw storage but not many vanities.

I just got my vanity in today, I'm probably going to get a chest to store everything else, because these drawers are small! They also don't open all the way.  This is my set up for now.

 

Whats your set up like? 

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

I love looking at everyone's vanities! My fiance and I just moved into a house together, and he's going to build a vanity for me. That's going to take awhile, so I need to find a cheap alternative in the meantime. Any suggestions for something under $200?

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

Ikea has some great ones for under $200! And after that, you can reuse it somewhere else as a desk!

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

Eventually, I'd love to set up a vanity table with a chair.  I've always liked the way they look, especially older antique styles.  For now, I just stand in front of the bathroom sink while putting on makeup.  At least the sink's right there when I need it  Smiley Wink

 

I recently ordered clear acrylic makeup drawers from Muji's US site. I bought four of the "Acrylic Case 5 Drawers" for $27.95 each.  Here are a couple pictures of how my makeup is currently organized using the Muji drawers.

I have the Ikea Malm and I just cut up boxes from purchases and stuck it underneath the glass to spruce it up a bit Smiley Happy

Mirror and Lights: Ikea

Chair: TJ Maxx - I had my eye on it for several weeks but I couldn't bring myself to pay $129 and when I went to look at it again, it was marked down to $99!

Magnified mirror: TJ Maxx

Drawers: Hautelook and Bed, Bath & Beyond

Lipstick holders: Hautelook & Amazon

Vanity Tray: Lamps Plus, SO RANDOM! But exactly what I wanted.

I made the brush holders using stuff I got from Michael's.

 

I also made this jewelry board and nail polish racks:

Muji is the best!  I wish Sephora had some storage solutions other than the traincases.... I'd totally invest in a TON!  The idea of cutting up your boxes & displaying them under the glass is great!  I did something similar & put my LE packaging in a frame & hung them Smiley Happy  I also really like your chair!  The detailing is perfect for a vanity!

I love what you did with the packaging from all of your palettes! It makes the glass desk look so bright and colorful!

Love all of it!  Thank you for sharing the where-to-buy info!

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

No problem!

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

This. Is. AMAZING!

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

I love that vanity mirror! Did it come lighted? I'm moving and thinking of fun, ideas for my new vanity area but am having the hardest time finding a mirror that 1.) will fit the space and 2.) is not super expensive.

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

No, the lights are separate but the mirror itself is only $9.99 (Ikea Kolja) and the lights were $14.99 (Ikea Ledberg). They are actually three separate pieces, but I only used two of them. They also have ones that come in four pieces for $29.99 Smiley Happy

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

So…I went to IKEA and picked up the mirror and lights tonight! It will be awhile before everything gets set up but I cannot wait!! Thanks again for the idea Smiley Happy

Spice racks... that's genius!!  I get so worried about hanging things in our place.  I feel like I'd do something wrong & the second I fill it up, everything will come crashing down Smiley Sad
